MOSCOW, August 24. /TASS/. Russia’s manufacturer Uralvagonzavod will demonstrate the combat capabilities of the T-90MS main battle tank adapted for Arab states at the Russia Arms Expo 2015 (RAE-2015) exhibition in Nizhny Tagil in the Urals, Uralvagonzavod Deputy CEO Alexei Zharich said on Monday.
"At this exhibition, we’ll demonstrate the T-90MS tank specially adapted for Arab countries. In Abu Dhabi [at the IDEX-2105 arms exhibition], we demonstrated the tank’s static capabilities, whereas now its combat potential will be displayed," Zharich said.
The demonstration of the tank’s combat capabilities will "surely attract new potential customers," the Uralvagonzavod official said.
The T-90MS is a modernized version of the T-90 tank and was demonstrated for the first time at the RAE-2011. Uralvagonzavod believes the new model has good prospects on the armaments market of the Middle East. Specifically, the tank has successfully passed trials in Kuwait.
Compared with the basic version, the T-90MS features a more powerful engine, a new air conditioner, the reinforced armor and a machine gun mounted on the turret.
The RAE-2015 arms exhibition will be held in Nizhny Tagil on September 9-12.
